Who else is pumped for FRIDAY?!?!
If you have been following along with my posts, this week has been a little nutso. However, the sun is shining, my brother is healing, and I have a day of pampering… spa, lunch with a friend, hair cut and color, an afternoon with two of my bff’s and an evening dinner with 10 Biker B!tches.
Friday, you have never looked so yummy.
1) Eat By Date
For anyone that knows me well enough also knows I am a FREAK when it comes to food sitting out.
And prepared food that has been in the fridge for more than a day? Forget about it.
However, with my busy weeks, I wanted to do food prep on Sunday’s so I can just grab and go (like I already mentioned). In order for me to come to terms with eating a piece of chicken on Wednesday that was cooked on Sunday, I needed to call in the reinforcements.
Ladies and Gents, let me introduce you to this little gem of a website: http://www.eatbydate.com/.
Those internet fairies are MY new heroes.
I should probably mention that I take their suggested eat-by dates, and subtract a day.
I know….. Give me a break. I still need some control over this, people! 😉
2) Scheduling Blog Posts
First, there is this heavenly word called DRAFT. I can start drafting a post and save until later.
Second, there is this cool calendar that I can set to publish a post at certain dates and times and like magic, it happens!
I am using this tool a little more lately in order to manage my time wisely. This also requires me to be a little more proactive in preparing blog posts. The ones I can start drafting early (like stories and recipes) I get started and edit as I go along, that way I am not trying to do it all at once. As a person who runs a tight schedule, this little feature is a big fave of mine.
And time management awesomeness.
3) My Beachbody Peeps
I was supposed to attend Insanity Certification last Saturday in Lenexa, KS with the GREAT Sara Easley, but had to cancel my trip due to my brothers illness. All I had to do was text Sara briefly what was going on and she immediately called Beachbody headquarters (they own Insanity), told them my deal, and within 3 days I had a full refund. What an awesome company! What an even cooler trainer and coach to take care of me from afar. Sara was first my TurboKick Trainer and has since become someone I would call a friend with all our communication that has happened since I met her in September. THANK YOU, Girl!
PS. I am slated to now attend Insanity Certification on Saturday, February 1st with Danielle Katz! She is a regular in Insanity videos. Oh boy! I am ready for an ass kickin’.
This baby just showed up on my doorstep yesterday. Made my hair smooth as silk. YAY for new beauty products. Now I can keep a flat iron at home and keep one in my gym bag at all times. Score for efficiency!
Wherever you are, and whatever you do, make today a great one!
It’s very good to hear your brother is healing 😀
